I stopped in Houston for 36 hours. Got this from Avis for peanuts a day. (I asked for a car with CarPlay because navigation)
1. It’s abase model but the interior is pretty decent. There is padded fabric on the dash and some faux leather on the side of the console. The uncovered plastic is still cheap but at least they made an effort.
2. The engine is ok. I think it’s turbo 4 and it is perfectly acceptable on Texas highways. Handling is not the best though. I toss it onto a tight on ramp and I swear the front tire squealed like I am trying to murder it. The steering is heavier than I expected, which is nice.
